I have not seen that one. This one here I have used in the past and was happy with it as a code reader. http://www.myscantool.com/ $60 for the software and $18 for the cable.

Got an cheapie OBD2 scanner off of amazon for 25 dollars. It just pulls codes and tells you if systems are ready and such, you have to look the codes up on your computer. I found it worth it though. Different strokes for different folks though.

Another option is if you have a smart phone. They have apps that connect to your car threw bluetooth, (if you buy a adapter). I run torque on my android and it works great.

I think I'm going to by it. It will let you view live data from the sensors & log it.
